Dennis Eckersley: Yoenis Cespedes’ Left Field Play Will Improve With Time (Video)

Fenway Park has one of the most unique outfields in all of baseball, particularly in left field. The Green Monster is certainly iconic, but it can be difficult to get used to, particularly for Boston Red Sox newcomer Yoenis Cespedes. Cespedes misplayed a ball in the eighth inning of Tuesday night’s loss to the Tampa Bay Rays that allowed two runs to score. While the Cuban slugger...

Dennis Eckersley after BoSox blowout loss: ‘We gotta recap this s**t? (video)

Dennis Eckersley, who serves as a studio analyst during Boston Red Sox games on NESN, couldn’t hide his disappointment that part of his job description listed the duty of providing postgame analysis following losses as well as wins.

NESN’s Dennis Eckersley drops “s-bomb” on air after Red Sox game (VIDEO)

Following the Red Sox 17-5 massacre of the Rangers Tuesday night, NESN’s Dennis Eckersley who was filling in for Jerry Remy tried to throw it to Tom Caron in the booth for a recap.  But…apparently Caron wasn’t ready for it.

Time for Tigers to get Hall love

Two years ago, I asked Dennis Eckersley about Barry Larkin and Alan Trammell. The two shortstops were on the Baseball Hall of Fame ballot that winter, and Eckersley had faced both during his playing career. "Trammell and Larkin," Eckersley, a 2004 Hall inductee, told me then, "are real close." The Hall of Fame voting may finally start to reflect that fact when...
